I’D DRIVEN FOR OVER AN hour with nowhere to go. Tears were blurring my
vision, my chest ached, and I wanted to curl up in a ball and sob freely. But
there was no time for that. I had Heidi to think of. My sister. She was my first
concern. Always my first concern. She could never know what had happened.
I no longer had a home or a job. I had this car I was driving. I had my
sister. That was it. Heidi’s care had been taken care of—or I thought it had
been. Jasper had said he was going to pay ten years in advance but I wasn’t
sure he’d had a chance to do that yet. Even if he had how could I let him after
what we’d learned? She was my sister. Mine. I should take care of her. Not
Just three hours ago my life had seemed perfect. I’d been happy and I was
almost at the point where I could accept the security that came with Jasper
Van Allan’s love. I didn’t blame him because he was an innocent bystander
of the dark past too. Our circumstances weren’t his fault or mine, but I should
have known better than to trust love. It was a dangerous path that eventually
uncovered lies that always led to ruin.
The home that Portia Van Allan had placed Heidi in for her long-term
care loomed up ahead. I pulled over to take a breath before walking inside to

know the ugliness of the world. Her heart was too big and her smile was too
bright to ruin them with our reality. The lies that I now knew regarding her
birth were secrets I’d keep. Heidi wouldn’t understand them anyway. She
loved our mother as I did. Our mother was a saint and I knew we’d never be
the same without her.
The fact Heidi had been born to Portia Van Allan was a secret I would
keep from her. Sharing who her birth mother was with Heidi was pointless,
even if she could understand—I wasn’t sure that was possible.
Heidi had been the most important person in my life for as long as I could
remember. Even as a kid I knew Heidi’s difference made her special.
Precious. Easier to love.
As much as I hated Portia for tossing Heidi away because she’d been born
with Down syndrome and that hadn’t fit into her life, I was equally thankful
she left her to my mother. Portia had given Heidi to us and she’d completed
my family. It had always been the three of us. A perfect three that I would
always cherish. Our mother had left us with beautiful memories. She had
taught us that family was everything.
I pulled off the road and shifted the car into park. Crossing my arms over
the steering wheel, I continued to cry. At this point, crying was all I could do.
It’s what I needed to do. I would cry and let it all out—my fear, my pain, my
